    Sometimes you get more than you pay for...

    By Simon Herschteller

    Comments about Yamaha FS720S Folk Acoustic Guitar:

    Scroll back up and add this guitar to your cart ASAP! cause your gonna wanna have this one in your arsenal. This small bodied guitar is great for people with small hands, people who like smaller bodied guitars and beginning players all the way up to those with rockstar ego's. As usual Yamaha's build quality is far beyond what you pay for. With a solid top and the crisp sound of Nato (which is also a great choice as a sustainable wood) to support the back and sides this guitar has a great clean, clear tone to it. All the frets were well dressed and there was no finger catching on the way up and down the neck. I have already replaced the bridge pins and saddle with a Graph Tech supercharger kit for more sustain and resonance (an upgrade I highly recommend, I will be replacing the nut soon too after I make one of correct dimensions.) Throw on a set of Thomas-Inkfeld Plectrum strings and this little baby will keep you smiling even after you put it down. Thanks Yamaha for making my day, and keeping it cheap!

    Can't be beat for the price

    By Mark the Bluesman

    Comments about Yamaha FS720S Folk Acoustic Guitar:

    I'd been searching for a concert size acoustic guitar for fingerpicking and didn't want to spend a lot right now for a Martin or Taylor. Wow was I surprised at the clarity and balance of the Yamaha FS-720S! Could not beleive the workmanship, fit and finish of this solid spruce topped guitar for under $300.00 out the door. I was impressed with the floor model after visiting it at Guitar Center for about a week, then decided to buy one just for a "kick-around" guitar. I had the salesman take a new one out of their inventory and the wood and also the tone was better than the floor model! It even comes with a great set of strings which is unusual for this price. Can't get a better sounding more balanced tone on a guitar this size unless you spend $700.00 to $1200.00 or more for a Seagull, Martin, or Taylor. Been playing acoustics for over 25yrs. and this was an incredible value for the money.

    very nice

    Comments about Yamaha FS720S Folk Acoustic Guitar:

    This was my first acoustic guitar. It plays great and has a warm crisp tone. I use it to strum and play rythem because acoustic solos are not for me. It is very loud but if you play live you gotta use a mic and a amp since it's not acoustic electric. The mic is the way to go because acoustic electric guitars don't sound that good like straight up acoustics.

    GREAT buy for the money! Love the sound.

    Comments about Yamaha FS720S Folk Acoustic Guitar:

    My step-son and I decided to take guitar lessons and soon after decided to go get a guitar for my birthday. We talked to the salesman at guitar center who explained the differences between a few models. This one was labeled as folk guitar meaning it has a narrower waist- it also has a solid spruce top rather than laminate. For us the narrow waist felt natural and light. The second the salesman played it, we could hear the obvious difference that the spruce made, it sounded vibrant and bright. I can't say enough about how much we love this guitar. GREAT buy for the money.
